I found this chart. What would be the difference between
SIM Card Cancellation vs Phone Number Deleted
Both seem to make it unusable to the end user.

Can they really expire funds on card?

Last time I was holding PAYG for several years, I was adding only more and more over the years and no funds disappeared !
Most SIM cards will deactivate if you haven’t made at least one chargeable call within 3-6 months.
The suggested 3 data reward SIM apparently doesn't deactivate as long as the SIM sees the network at least every few months. Been stated on this forum many times by real users, and within one of the recent similar ask threads.

The SIM I was referring to before is actually -3-
Also left not used for long periods ha
Then I lost it
I might ask for replacement after 1 y, maybe its still working
Uswitch
I think a Smarty sim is £5, but if you don’t use your data, you get money back, up to £1.25
You should be able to get an old 321 O2 sim on eBay, it's called the classic. It's the same price as three 3-2-1 but you get 2G with O2 if you need it in the countryside.

1p mobile might be worth a look, have to top up £10 every 4 months so might not be for you, but 1p for everything.
1p mobile - £10 lasts for three months, unless you are a heavy user.
